Typically as a rule, no manufacturer will release this kind of info.

I got one, so we're up to three...

I suppose, if we had a sampling of the number on this board, then some enterprising statistician could interpolate the market penetration???


Never mind.

When a reitired colleague dropped into the office unexpectedly I remembered he'd been a keen amateur videographer and I thought here surely was a buyer for my XL1s. When I asked "Are you still doing video" he replied "Yes. Just got a new camera. A Canon XL2". So that one with mine adds 2 to the tally.

I've chatted with a couple of big vendors in the USA and Canada and the XL2 is selling well. The FX1 isn't stealing it's thunder, they reall do appeal to a different market.

I'm guessing far more than the 88 we've identified.

Just a guess though
